Education vs Intelligence

I should read those two quotes when I’m upset with my older kid. He is a very smart boy (140 IQ), but a lazy one. And because of this laziness, sometimes, he brings home not so good grades.

Who are you?

I found a few days ago a very interesting quote. And I liked it – read it below:

“The greatest challenge in life is discovering who you are.

The second greatest is being happy with what you find.”

 

My inspirational quotes

Last week I moved in a new office. And since I had to moved all my stuff, I used that opportunity to check some of my old files.

See below my new inspirational quotes (that I found looking through my files). I don’t know the source, since the majority if them I got them from tea bags or from the Chinese fortune cookies.  🙂

“The purpose of life is to enjoy every moment.”

“Joy is the essence of success.”

“The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today.”

Reading

Did I ever tell you that I’m a little obsessed with reading?

Well, I am. I start reading (a lot) since childhood, but in the last years I got worst (or good, depends how you see things). I read hundreds of books and fanfiction stories in the last years. This year I created an account on wattpad.com and since January I read over 110 books. So many times I skipped watching TV in favor of reading  … and I don’t regret it!

And since we are talking about books and reading, I just found some quotes that are very cool:

“Some people read and they fall asleep, some people read and they wake up.” – unknown source

“So many books, so little time.” – Frank Zappa

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies, the man who never reads lives only one.” – George R.R. Martin

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.” – Garrison Keillor

“A book is a proof that humans are capable of working magic.” – unknown source

“Books aren’t just made of words…they are also filled with places to visit and people to meet.” – unknown source
